Electromagnetic wave absorbers for anechoic chamber are needed to broaden the useful frequency bandwidth, reduce the thickness, and decrease the weight. There are various absorbers proposed for the above conditions, but they could not decisively solve the above requirements. The Electromagnetic wave absorber made by a conventional ferrite tile has, for example, broadened the useful frequency bandwidth by the way of forming air layer. Therefore, an air layer is formed absorber between a reflection plate and a sintered Ni-Zn ferrite tile of 7 mm in thickness, which has reflectivity less than -20 dB from 30 MHz to 450 MHz in frequency band, far narrower than the aimed bandwidth. The purpose of this paper is on the development of a universal anechoic chamber for measuring radiated electromagnetic wave or immunity of electronic equipments, GTEM-cell, wall material for prevention of TV ghost, etc. Accordingly, in this paper, a broadened electromagnetic wave absorber is designed, which has the reflection characteristics less than -20 dB from 30 MHz to 5,430 or 8,000 MHz in the bandwidth. Then we will design a super broadband electromagnetic wave absorber by inserting square Ferrite Cylinders Type with the thickness less than 23.5 m in three-layed type and with the frequency band from 30 MHz to 5,430-8,000 MHz under the above tolerance limits.
